At 43, Dabo Swinney is the youngest head coach in the ACC and one of the youngest in the country, and his resumé is already stuffed with many significant accomplishments on a school, ACC, and national level.
Swinney has led Clemson to a 10-2 record in the regular season, including a 7-1 mark in the ACC, the most regular season conference wins in Clemson history.
“I’ve had to learn and grow, and I’ve worked hard at it,” he said. “I was a better player as a senior than a freshman. I was a better student my senior year in college than my freshman year in college… I think as you mature you get better at anything. I am a much more mature coach just from going through it.”
Swinney pushes his players and his program to show the same kind of growth. “I think that’s what the best of the best do, they are always striving to get better,” he said.
